Worst Teams in Premier League History (Part 3)

Sunderland (2002/03)

Despair for Gavin McCann of Sunderland which also has been ugly for Sunderland fans as the 2002/03 season was nothing but a nightmare after just four victories all season.

With the club falling down towards the bottom of the table, manager Peter Reid was fired and replaced with Howard Wilkinson. However, he worked just five months before being relieved of his position, and successor Mick McCarthy also failed to make any progress for the team.

Sunderland finished the year with just 19 points, a shame of 25 points behind the 17th-placed  Bolton Wanderers. Kevin Phillips’ six goals was simply insufficient, and the Black Cats dropped back to the second tier.

 Portsmouth (2009/10)

Portsmouth officially finished the season  with 19 points, which is one of the lowest record in history, but this was no fault of the players.

In fact, the team managed seven wins and seven draws, which should have been counted with 28 points (still they will be played at bottom of the table), but financial problems araised the same year and Portsmouth were eventually deducted nine points after entering administration, dropping their tally down to 19 points.

Players and staff were unpaid for most parts of the year, and the club found themselves in debt to several clubs after they failed to finance their transfer dealings. With 19 points, they will be recorded as one of the worst performing teams in Premier League history.

Aston Villa (2015/16)

 The 2015/16 season was not so memorable for  Aston Villa fans, but they will remember it for all the wrong reasons as the Villains signed a total of 12 new footballers, including current  Everton player Idrissa Gueye and Wolverhampton Wanderers dribbling phenom Adama Traore, but they managed just three wins and 17 points all year, and they slumped to the Championship with little more than whimper.

Watford (1999/00)

In 1997,  Watford were member of the third tier of English football, but two successive promotions enable them to upgrade to the  Premier League. However, the top flight seemed to be a step too far.

Graham Taylor’s side managed to win over both  Liverpool and Chelsea early-season which led many people to believe they could survive in the division, but things didn’t turn out as expected. 

Watford had just six wins all season, ended up with a total of 24 points, which was the lowest points ever recorded by a Premier League at the time. Icelandic forward Heidar Helguson ended up as the team’s top scorer with just six goals, in a season which many fans would want to forget.

Sunderland (2016/17)

Matching Watford’s total of 24 points, Sunderland endured a difficult time during the 2016/17 season, and the Black Cats has yet to fully recovered.

Sunderland quickly found themselves drop to the bottom of the table, and they did not find their first victory until the match against  Bournemouth team in November. That win was one of six prestigious victories which the team managed all season, and they ended up a total of 16 points from survival.

 Jermain Defoe and  Jordan Pickford were two critical members of David Moyes’ side, but the expensive arrivals of Papy Djilobodji and Didier N’Dong did not bring much value to the club, who now find themselves in League One after suffering relegation from the  Championship for a long time
